Forum: GratefulDead Subject: ...where everyone knows your name

Cheers Redux

Cue music, open with slow shot of a seedy corner building with a few questionable cars out front, each bearing tattered stickers proclaiming how the Fat Man Rocks and how nice it is to have a Sunshine Daydream.
As the doorway to the establishment starts to creak open, the singing begins to a familiar tune:

"Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows your name.
You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows your name."

Starring:
Rob T. Wordsmith as Cliff Claven (except he actually seems to mostly know what he's rambling on about, even if no one else does)
Dire Wolf as Norm (well, he used to hang out here almost constantly, proving to be the perfect foil to Rob; new suggestions welcome)
William Tell as Coach (oftentimes babbling, but still so adorable)
Myself as Woody (please, check your juvenile double entendres at the door)
Not sure who would take the part of Sam; do we have any overly good looking ex-athletes in this part of the world? Anything is possible, suggestions always welcome.
Rob could also double as Carla if needed. Genitalia aside, he can be quite the smart ass when called upon.
As for Diane, I suppose any pune-pushing Troll would do, someone seriously out of place that mostly serves as a source of great humor.

This came to me yesterday as I was on the way home and I realized how unique this place is. Serving as a place where folks who don't necessarily fit in anywhere else can gather with like minded people and be as geeky as they like with no (well, almost) fear of condemnation or judgement. I'm betting there are a few of you out there who, like me, spent a few years keeping the true Freak hidden away as you became engrossed in things like work and family. Stumbling on this place proved to be the cause of a serious re-awakening, spurring an even deeper love and appreciation for this magical music as I listened with new ears to what I may have taken for granted in years past. So, I just wanted to give a tip o' the cap to the folks who started this place and giving me a place to ramble and vent with folks who, for the most part, understand what I'm talking about.

Sorry, just felt like I had to put that out there. Now, back to our regular programming.

Oh,yeah, and what rival chat room could be our Melville's? Lost Sailor Pub would be my choice. Apparently they aren't too fond of all the noise we make.

if I dont stop eating take-out food so often, i am going to quickly approach the approximate girth as Norm.

you requested all juvenile comments regarding "Woody" remain at the door, so I will surprisingly oblige that request.

She got 'em shopping for year at the local A&P Supermarket.

All is indeed well, despite the Pat's uber-lame performance last week. Having the grandbaby around has been a breath of fresh air (well, not when I'm called upon to deal with diaper changes...at least I've still "got it").

Just heed the lesson learned in "Beetlejuice". And if that fails, don't let them get wet nor eat aftermidnight.

It's already happening. I won't bore you with the details. If you're looking for something like LSP without all the BS drama, try the Transitive Axis.

http://transitiveaxis.forumup.us

Featuring 100% less K-man than LSP. Wish I could say the same for this place.

Can I be Frasier? I've always wanted to be a pompous,
intelligent person. I have neither of those qualities.
As long as we're pretending...

Is "genitalia aside" still on the table? (better use bleach
on that table)
Left sided? Or right sided genitals? Mine leans to the...........nevermind.
And as far as the 'checking my double entendres at the door'?
I assume that the closet door. The one you still have yet
to come out of :P

Your insane posts are just as good as your "legitimate" ones.
And its always nice to draw dire out of the woodwork too.
Well done.
Wait, what IS my name? dammit I fragot it
At least I got a pix of direwolf (in my head):

We gotta find a few more shows--good choice, but we need a greater range of characters; not sure there are any, except maybe Star Trek, eh?

Star Trek is a good pick.

Larry could be Spock, his ability to provide expert analysis (he, he, he said "anal", he, he) is unparalleled.
You'd be McCoy, the loveable curmudgeon never afraid to let anyone know how stupid they are.
Rob could be Scotty, the wise technician with a heart of gold (and what I'm pretty sure is a well stocked liqour cabinet somewhere down in Engineering).
Me? I know, most of you will say Sulu and make some snide "in the hollow" joke. Go ahead, have at it.
There are a few out there I know we'd elect to wear the dreaded red shirt. Parting is such sweet sorrow.

Ah, now we may be getting somewhere...ahem, who, however, is the fearless leader to whom I suck up so often? I'd say "me", but I don't want to play Kirk and be forced to take off my shirt--none of you wants that to happen, believe me...we're going to have to think long and hard about this...ah, eh; well, okay, Dire was the once and future King, so perhaps he'd stand in for Mr Tambourine man?

At least we have plenty of gals around...was it the nurse that goes after Spock at one pt, when his primal urges are aroused? I hate to start something that no one can finish, but I am afraid Rose might have to play that part to L's Spock, right?

Perhaps ducat can play a tribble?

Are you implying that Ducat is a fuzzy ball?

(no, that is not another "teabagging" reference)

As for fearless leader, I'd be frightened to have Dire. Especially since I doubt he'd make it off the Planet of Randy Cows.

Mando could be Harry Mudd. I believe he was a pirate of some kind (no, not THAT kind of pirate...again, we're back to Sulu).
